Dr. Gabriele Gross obtained her Veterinary license and focus on Equine nutrition in 1987 in Germany at the Veterinary University Hannover. She rounded her University education with a PhD. in Pharmacology and Neuroscience in 1989, along with a position as teaching assistant to Head of Department Prof. Dr. W. Loescher. “This is when I discovered my passion for teaching”. Being retired from conventional Equine Veterinary practice, Dr. Gross focuses on educating Equestrians how to keep their horses naturally healthy through nutrition. Dr. Gabi also works as an independent researcher and scientist. “During my career, I was lucky to learn from the Worlds best in different disciplines. My gratitude goes to my ‘Doktor-Vater’ (PhD. Mentor) Prof. Loescher and my mentors at New Bolton Center, in particular Mrs Ginny Reef, who sparked my interest in research in my early years. Imprinting also were my years at the Equine Colic and Specialty clinic in Kerken, Germany, which, through quite dramatic examples, taught me that ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’, especially for horses. Prevention requires education. Education requires time which my practicing Veterinary colleagues do not have. My mission is to support Equestrians as well as my practicing Veterinary colleagues. Interdisciplinary communication and referrals are of essence if we want to support our clients in the best way.”
